Leyton Orient v Rotherham United Preview, League One Play Off Final, Sunday 25th May 2014

Leyton Orient came through their semi final game beating Peterborough United 3-2 on aggregate and now with a trip to Wembley for their fans to enjoy on sunday afternoon Russell Slade’s side will be brimming with confidence of being able to get the job done and secure promotion to the Championship.

However, they are going up against a very organised side in Rotherham United who were extremely impressive in their semi final match when destroying Preston North End 4-2 on aggregate and with Kieran Agard now back involved in the squad Leyton Orient really do have a very tough game on their hands come sunday afternoon at the famous Wembley Stadium.

Leyton Orient Team News:

Manager Russell Slade has no injuries or suspensions to contend with for this important play off final and looks likely to name the same starting eleven that secured a 2-1 victory against Peterborough United in the semi final second leg match last time out.

Rotherham United Team News:

Manager Steve Evans has almost a full squad to choose his starting lineup from for this game, but will be missing the services of defender Mark Bradley who is out with a knee injury. Kieran Agard returned to the squad for the 3-1 victory over Preston North End having missed the first leg and the clubs current top goalscorer was again on target for his team.

Leyton Orient v Rotherham United Match Betting Odds Market

Leyton Orient are very much seen as the under-dogs here to win this game by the online bookmakers and are currently a best price of 85/40 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) which will no doubt see plenty of their fans getting on at and does look value considering they did finish above their opponents in the league table this season.

The Draw has not been a result that has occurred often when these two clubs have met each other in the past, but this is a huge game and with the players obviously going to be carrying some sort of nerves in front of a packed out Wembley Stadium, there is an obvious chance that this game could go to extra time and penalties, so it might be worth getting something on the draw here as your main cover bet at generous odds of 12/5 with Bet365 (£200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers) currently being available.

Rotherham United did finish below Leyton Orient in the league table this season, but that was only on goal difference as both clubs secured 86pts, but the online bookmakers seemed to be much more impressed with their victory against Preston North End in their semi-final match than they were with Leyton Orient’s victory against Peterborough United as they have Russell Slade’s side priced up as the clear favourites to win this match at a current best price of 7/5 with Paddy Power (£200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers).

Leyton Orient v Rotherham United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This game is obviously going to be extremely tight on sunday afternoon in front of a packed out Wembley Stadium and there will also be plenty of nerves about and with the average goals per game statistics indicating that this game should only see one or two goals scored, it could turn out that the team that scores first will win this match and with it promotion to the Championship next season.

However, looking back at what both clubs have achieved this season, both in the league and during these play offs, you can’t help but be impressed with the way Rotherham United have been playing and I can certainly see why the online bookmakers have made Russell Slades side the clear favourites to win this game, especially now they have their top goalscorer back in the fold.

Lets get onto some predictions for this match and my Banker is going to be Rotherham United to Win as although Leyton Orient will be a very tough side to beat, I just think the Rotherham team has a slightly stronger squad which should prove the difference come sunday afternoon.

My Saver is going to be this game to see Total Match Goals 2 or 3 as if Rotherham United don’t win this game during the 90mins, then it will probably be because the game has finished 1-1, so getting on the total goals is a clever choice for a back up bet.
